I'M GIVING IT AWAY ! I didn't create the software, I only found it, and the authors want you to have it FREE.

Here's a working example of the Free download script and mp3 streaming player.

1968-A Total Electric Happening by the Mind Garage $7.99


The example above is a working model and you can sell your mp3s too just like this. If you want to sell digital products online, such as mp3s, ebooks, reports, and videos , your order process needs to be automated. And your download link needs to be protected so it can not be passed around freely.

Musicians can go to iTunes, etc, but they will pay as much $20 to place one song on iTunes, and even more if they want to sell multiple songs and still more to have their songs for sale at more download stores than iTunes . iTunes and the individual stores set the price of the music. The musician has no say in it, and gets paid 70 cents per song, or $7.00 per album even if the album has 20 songs in it. And as long as you want to keep your songs available for download, you will keep paying, monthly or yearly fees even if you don't sell any music. Guess what, if you do sell some music , you may not be able to access your money if you haven't met the minimum withdrawal amount. And sometimes your money isn't available to withdraw for up to 45 days after the sale. Sure, you want to sell downloads safely, but is iTunes etc really necessary? What's so great about what iTunes, etc?. Are you hoping iTunes will promote your fantastic song? That won't happen. All they want is 30% of your individual song sales plus $20 initially, which means 100% of the money from the first 40 songs you sell belongs to iTunes etc. YOU are the one writes the songs, promotes the songs, and yet you make nothing !!!

The alternative to iTunes, etc is to buy software that can be expensive, complicated to install, and licensed for use on one web server.

Why would you choose either way ? The answer is because you haven't had a better choice until now. !!! NOW THERE IS ANOTHER WAY !!! A FREE , simple, safe way to sell downloads called SIMPLE IPN.

*NOTE: There is a function in Simple IPN for testing before you 'go live', but it is not always cooperative, leading you to believe that your program does not work. I found it easier to set the price of my mp3 at 10 cents for testing and 'go live', actually buying it from myself with a personal paypal account. That's FREE too. If you want to throw a few bucks my way for telling you WHERE IT'S AT consider buying A TOTAL ELECTRIC HAPPENING, it's not mandatory. :-). If you do BUY A Total Electric Happening, and burn it to a CD, you could download the image below to use as an insert in the CD case. Now if you feel really thankful, although they say it is optional, send a little to the geniuses who created these programs.

Forty Years in the Making
THE LOST DEMOS. (The Early Years)

In 1968 these songs were recorded as demos at Glen Campbell Studio in Pittsburgh, Pa. and Bell Sound Studio, Long Island, New York. Asphalt Mother and Reach Out were released on the band's own Morning Glori Label as a 45 RPM single.

Soon after, the band was signed to RCA records. The remaining tracks were never released, and were put away. The Master Tapes disappeared, and except for a brief emergence of the badly deteriorated 33 1/3 rpm acetate 15 years later in 1983, the songs were forgotten for several more decades. At the 1983 Carolina session. the first Mind Garage recording session since 1969, several cassette tapes were made from the acetate, which has since been lost.

Then 21 years later, in 2004 one of the cassettes, now itself deteriorating, turned up and a CD was made from it. The CD sounded just like the old scratchy and popping acetate. The quality was completely unacceptable for release. But due to the perseverance of the lead singer, Larry McClurg, several attempts were made to remaster. It was an impossible task even for Rick Ravenscroft in the Rave Cave. The songs seemed doomed.

But late in 2005 Rick came across a cassette in better shape that had been stored well, in the the posession of Evan Jones. Evan had played guitar with the Mind Garage at the Carolina session. The Carolina recordings have yet to be released. Rick Ravenscroft Music started the remastering project all over again. For three months Rick examined and restored each song, note by note. Collectors and fans will enjoy the raw, live sound, albeit with inherent sonic limitations, mastered from best possible sources.

Five years later in 2009 the Early Years songs were "discovered" by Anazitisi Records. The sound was remastered once again for vinyl at Anazitisi studios and released in Europe, Australia and Japan. Only Rick's skill and dedication has made the release of the CD and vinyl possible. The vinyl album "A Total Electric Happening " is available to purchase on the internet at as either black or colored vinyl.

A Total Electric Happening has made the long journey to a new century, barely surviving one older medium after another long enough to be saved in each new recording technology. It has come full circle from demo acetate, to cassette tape, to CD and finally to vinyl as it should have been in 1968. A truly remarkable journey, making it possible to once more
